For the last couple days I have been getting things cleaned and set up since we're hosting Easter dinner for my side of the family.
Here is what I've been up to...
I picked up this egg wreath at TJ Maxx the other day. It was in pretty sad shape since it was missing a couple eggs and lots of them were unattached. I never do this... but I asked the sales clerk if they would offer me a discount because it had so many defects, and they gave me $5 off! It didn't take much to fix it up. I love the colors and it really is a welcoming addition to our front door. For the centerpiece on the dining room table, I gathered up Easter and Spring themed items I have around the house. I got the idea from Karla to create a centerpiece with lots of mismatched things tied together with a mirror as the base.
Since there will be 16 of us Sunday, I have 3 tables to set. I'm using this china in the dining room. The other 2 tables will be set with Franciscan Desert Rose. These beautiful crystal goblets belonged to my Grandma and were given to me after she passed away. I've always loved their style and each time we use them, I think of how happy she'd be knowing they are being used and enjoyed.
I made little nut cups for each place setting that will be filled with some yummy chocolates. They haven't been filled with the sweets yet since there is a certain 3 year old in the house who can't seem to ever get enough candy...

We wish you all a very Happy Easter!
